This build has not been seen in a public branch.

Via the CS:GO blog:

The following changes are in the “” CS:GO Beta depot.


  • Shipping more changes to pistols with the goal of emphasizing skillful use of the weapons.
  • Five-SeveN: The Five-SeveN has been adjusted to reward tactical positioning and defensive play.
  • Slightly improved accuracy when firing several shots rapidly.
  • Substantially reduced accuracy while moving.


  • Prime status is now immediately granted to Perfect World accounts with identity verification.
  • Enabled support for custom avatars in game.
  • Enabled access to the developers console.


  • Overhauled internal weapon data representation. All weapons are expected to behave identically to aside from the Five-SeveN and bugfixes listed below.
  • Fixed an issue that caused players to not drop their 2nd flashbang if they are killed after throwing 1 flashbang during the round.
  • Fixed an issue where sniper bots didn’t like the Scar20.
  • Fixed an issue where buying non-weapon items would restock ammo for all your weapons.
  • Fixed some corner cases where buying items via console could ignore the user’s loadout selection.
  • Fixed an issue where attempting to drop undroppable items (like grenades) would count the items value towards the player’s “donations” for the round.
  • Fixed a rare issue that could cause players to show incorrect holstered weapons.
  • Fixed an issue where decoy grenades could make sounds from the wrong weapon.
  • Fixed “buy” console command to list all options instead of being a hardcoded help string.
  • Map editing: env_gunfire entities can now fire all weapon types (e.g. weapon_m4a1_silencer or weapon_revolver)
  • Fixed a memory leak related to spectating.
  • Adding ability to initiate trades from friend’s context menu.
  • Improved map load times in some circumstances.

Rumor has it:

  • /u/SlothSquadron is working on a breakdown of the Five-SeveN changes

  • Wish to opt in? Right-click on CS:GO in your Steam library, go to Properties, go to the Betas tab, then select ""

  • If you don't see this branch offered, restart Steam

  • To opt in for servers: run "app_update 740 -beta" in SteamCMD

  • Valve servers will almost definitely be unavailable as has been the case with the last few prerelease tests

  • SteamDB GameTracking services will be completely unavailable as it only keeps eyes on the public branch - be aware

  • Size is close to 20 MB
